Another Question For You Suppressor Guys

Never shot a gun with a suppressor, they're not legal in Illinois but I'm just curious. I don't know how much they weigh but after shooting a 1911 for almost 70 years I'm wondering how much that additional weight on the end of the gun effects your ability to shoot it accurately, is it a relearning experience?

Phil will have more hands on experience. I've not had a range session yet. The day I brought them home, I fired about 10 rounds thru the Ruger MKIII and Sparrow, it's very light, you barely notice it. The Sig SRD45 adds 12ozs to the TLE Pro (TFS), more noticeable to me is the length it adds and not so much the weight. Phil and I will report back after we check it out. Way to much rain for us to go shoot plus I just got back from Hard Rock Casino in Biloxi, MS.

The added weight even 12ozs of a suppressor is why I bought the Pro model in 45 and why I've been wanting a Pro size threaded 9mm or I think a Ultra threaded in 9mm would be awesome.
